PC Build for 3d modeling and gaming

Hello, I'm looking to build my own PC for 3d modeling and gaming.
What build would be the best for the price range of 1500-2000
I use softwares such as zbrush, 3ds max, photoshop...
Take note that this would be my first time building a computer so pointers would be much appreciated!
